The Economics Alumni Network

The Economics Alumni Network was founded in 2003 through the efforts of Larry Malone, Jens Miller '03, Michael Piagentini '03, and Sky Gordon '08 and is maintained by Lindsey Frawley '13.

The network has three objectives, which are furthered by the alumni who have joined it and agreed to respond occasionally to inquiries via e-mail from members and prospective members of the Hartwick College community:

  • to provide a way to maintain and renew connections among alumni of the Hartwick College Economics Department;
  • to provide advice and mentoring to current Hartwick College students who are exploring career interests; and
  • to offer insights about Hartwick College to prospective students who are interested in applying for admission.

The Network is updated continuously. If you are an alum of the Department of Economics, and would like to join the network or update your entry, please send an e-mail to indicate your interest to Dr. Laurence Malone,
